“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

The Longplayer Conversation with Denise Ferreira da Silva

 ...Denise is a favorite philosopher and a friend. This needs no explanation. Hosted by the ever amazing, ever gracious Gareth Evans. 


I Love This Q&A

 ...I've never watched this before. Just did. Someone was asking about my "shouty" phase. This was the clincher. 2012. Basically a lot of people said "You made me feel so anxious" and I was like, great, thanks, I wanted to do that. Also, "What the hell do you think you're doing?" and "No one will want to study this." Mentioning academic competition at the end was another big mistake lolol. 

I had just written Hyperobjects. I spent 15 six-hour days in the student coffee lounge writing that without notes.

My Hololabs Lecture

 "Symbiotic Politics." This was fun to do. 

I Really Like this Picture of "Broken Obelisk"

 ...in my street, outside the Rothko Chapel, dedicated to Martin Luther King. All kinds of dimensions open here. I took it yesterday. Suddenly, the image was right there.
